    CINEMA MON AMOUR
    Film in Art

    Private view January 21st 2017, 5pm

    A joint project of the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the Solothurn Film Festival
    January 22th – April 17th 2016

    Film and art have been inseparably linked since the invention of the medium of film. In January 2017, the Aargauer Kunsthaus and the Solothurn Film Festival are devoting an exhibition (Cinéma mon amour. Film in Art) and a special programme (Art mon amour) to the reciprocal fascination between art and film. During the 52th Solothurn Film Festival from 19 to 26 January, 2017 circa ten Swiss and international films will be shown as part of the Fokus special programme. At the same time, the Aargauer Kunsthaus opens its doors for a 13-week group show featuring works of contemporary artists that deal with film and cinema in a variety of ways.

    The exhibition at the Aargauer Kunsthaus shows works of international artists that reflect on various aspects of cinema and filmmaking. Interest in the subject goes well beyond the art form itself, as evidenced by the wide range of media to which the artists resort. Drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and installation are included as well as works of video and film that stand out for their sophisticated forms of presentation. Thematically, the works reflect on film and cinema-related topics: they examine the production processes and conditions of film, take up the language of specific film genres and films or explore issues relating to the distribution of films, their reception and cinema as an institution. And even “by-products” of the motion picture industry, such as screen credits or the movie poster, inspire artistic work as well.
